Whether you've got a short napper or an up-all-night-er, our method will transform your baby's sleep in a matter of days. No more endless rocking, no more marathon nursing sessions, just the rest that your baby needs & your whole family deserves.
What is independent sleep? It’s when you put your baby down in their crib, completely awake, and not only do they happily drift off to sleep, all on their own, but they stay asleep all night. And we promise, it’s not a myth. With some basic understanding of baby sleep, you can help your child get there, while never losing sight of the love and connection you two share.
In this section, we cover everything you need to know to set you — and your baby! — up for success, including how and when to get started, how to prepare babies' sleep space & other important logistics to help build the foundation for independent sleep.
This section takes you through our proven sleep method, so you know exactly what to do to get your baby not only sleeping through the night, but taking consistent, longer naps each day. Whether your baby is taking 3 naps or 1, taking 2 overnight feeds or none, at home full-time or in a daycare environment, we have step-by-step guides and sample schedules for every age and situation. We also have tips for creating effective bedtimes and morning routines, as well how to troubleshoot issues along the way.
Independent sleep is not a “one and done” process. Even after you go through this course and get your baby sleeping independently, there are sure to be times where they won’t sleep well. From developmental milestones to illness to traveling, this section covers some of the most common sleep disruptions your child might experience, so you will know how to spot them and how to overcome them quickly & confidently.
The thought of dropping a nap can be stressful, but as babies get older, it’s bound to happen. In this section, we’ll cover the three common nap transitions in detail, and provide plenty of pro tips to make these shifts as smooth as possible.
So, what does “expert” really mean? We only offer classes and consultations that are led by professionally certified individuals with top accreditations. Together, our instructors have helped thousands of parents combined.
As fellow parents, we get it. Life is busy. So, once you start, you and your partner can learn from the comfort of your favorite spot, take breaks, and refer back for up to 2 years.

Yes, we feel so confident our sleep method will work for your family that we’ve included a money-back guarantee. This method has been implemented with thousands of families all around the world, and when implemented correctly and consistently, 94% (!) of those families reported their baby was sleeping through the night in 4 nights or less and taking consistent, age-appropriate naps within 2 weeks. More than that, these families reported improved mental and physical health, marital relationships, and productivity at work and at home.
Many families want to know if there will be crying while following this method. Yes, tears do happen, but don't worry, this method is carefully designed to reduce crying as much as possible. It is in no way a "cry it out" approach. While we root our method in the latest sleep science, we also never lose sight of your love and connection, and you will be able to check in on your baby throughout the process to know they are safe and secure.
So, why will there be tears? Your baby has likely been relying on things like nursing, rocking, or other "sleep props," and we are asking them to learn how to fall asleep without any of those things. Learning how to sleep independently is just like learning any other skill in that it comes with a learning curve, and learning curves can be frustrating.
But luckily, when followed carefully, our method brings big results in as little as 3 days, so everyone's frustrations will be short-lived!
The Tinyhood Sleep Method can be used or babies starting at 16 weeks (age calculated on due date, not birth date!) through 24 months, so long as your child isn't climbing out of their crib.
The majority of families report that their baby is sleeping through the night in 3-4 nights and taking consistent, age-appropriate naps within 1-2 weeks.
While it can take up to 2 weeks to get your baby on a consistent nap schedule on top of sleeping through the night, the bulk of the work will be done in the first 48 hours of implementing the program. So if you can give us one weekend of dedication, followed by several weeks of consistent follow-through, we promise this will work.
100%. This program will absolutely work for parents whose children go to daycare. We recommend that parents keep their children at home for the first 48 hours of starting the program, or one full weekend. We can give you results, regardless of your childcare arrangement.
For daycare families, the course also includes a chapter devoted to navigating our method with your daycare provider.
When you give your baby the time and space they need to learn how to sleep independently, you aren’t just giving them the rest they need to develop and thrive; you are strengthening the relationships and lessening the stress within your entire family. We know there can be a lot of worry about what teaching independent sleep might do for attachment, but fortunately there has now been study after study debunking the myth that crying throughout the course of teaching independent sleep harms attachment. Our course is specifically designed to teach baby the skill of independent sleep as quickly as possible, while preserving the special bond you two share.
Absolutely! Whether your baby is taking 1 feed, 2 feeds or 0 feeds overnight, we take you step-by-step through every scenario, so you’ll know exactly what to do for your baby.
So long as your baby is falling asleep independently at night, meaning they are being put down in their crib awake and falling asleep 100% on their own, yes, you can absolutely implement our program for naptime only. If your baby is not falling asleep independently at night though, we highly recommend using our program as your approach to both daytime and nighttime sleep to avoid confusing your baby. It’s also important to know that achieving independent sleep for naps takes more time than for nighttime sleep because baby doesn’t have that extra boost of melatonin to help them sleep like they do at night.
We find that pacifiers almost always do more harm than good when it comes to aiding independent sleep. Either your baby is too young to put the pacifier back in themselves, leaving you to replace it for them every time they wake, or they are old enough to replace it on their own and fully wake themselves in the process of searching for it. For these reasons, we recommend that you stop using the pacifier for sleep on night one, with your pediatrician’s approval. If your binky lover still wants to use one during the day, however, that’s totally okay.
Yes, definitely. This sleep course can improve the sleep of both singletons and twins, but there are some modifications for twins. But don’t worry, they are easy to implement and are explained clearly in our special “Twins” segment of the course.
